Newcastle eyeing powerful wide-man to boost title hopes

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are eager to see some late deals go through in the coming days and, according to Chronicle Live, Modou Barrow is a target.

The Magpies have been engaged in a title tussle all season with Brighton up until now and our landlord reckons whoever does the best business over the coming days could get the crucial edge.

The north-east side haven’t done any business so far, though, and so there could be a real flurry of activity on their part over the next week with Barrow a possibility.

According to the report, the Geordies want to bring Barrow in from Swansea on loan with the winger struggling for game time at the relegation threatened Premier League side.

He does have plenty of power and pace to use down the flanks, though, and so if he can get a bit of confidence and momentum going he could prove to be a solid signing.

It remains to be seen if a permanent deal gets arranged thereafter but our landlord reckons he could end up being a shrewd acquisition for the club.

Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
